 Thursday marks one year since same-sex marriage became legal in Idaho. That means it’s also the one year wedding anniversary for Rachael and Amber Beierle. The Beierlies are one of four couples who sued to overturn Idaho’s ban on gay marriage. We heard from them several times over the course of their lawsuit.

This week, our Adam Cotterell checked in with the couple to see how their lives have changed. The biggest difference, Amber says, is a third member in their family...who was also there for our interview. Hear all three Beierlies by clicking play.

Now, we’d like to hear from you.  How has your life changed in the past year?  How has the state changed?  We’ve set up a hotline where you can call in and offer your thoughts.  That number is 426-3671.  We’ve also posted the number on Twitter and Facebook.
